|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello my fellow fanfiction writers! I, like many of you, really enjoy reading and writing fanfictions. I found my passion for writing through fanfiction so this website has always had a special place in my heart. I'm respectful reader and editor. I love helping others discover the joys of writing. For this reason I started a creative writing club. I'm very good at analyzing a piece of writing and understanding the author's writing style and thought process. For the most part I wont ever add my own words to a piece of writing, but I will point out all the places that have awkwardness, excessive detail, not enough detail, or just plain irrelevant ditties. I'm also very good at spotting those dry "I just want to get through this" sort of scenes and help ease it over. I really enjoy editing and am almost always available on this site.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can help uncomplicate hard parts to write, I'm good person to talk to if you have writers block or just a bit of writers procrastination. I'm very flexible and am willing to adjust to your style. I will always put in 100% effort so I expect the same in response. As far as grammar, punctuation, and style goes, I'm pretty decent at it. I have good advice and motivation, and am fairly knowledgeable about plot and character developments.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm very bad at meeting deadlines, but I will always get your writing back to you. I can be a bit harsh when the situation calls for it, but criticism is ALWAYS constructive and non-evasive! I'm a bit of a picky reader but usually fair minded. I also expect a writer to reciprocate the effort the editor puts into his/her work. I'm only sixteen and quite honestly, my knowledge is limited to what I learn in school and see in my very sheltered life of school, home, bookstores, and movies. (That was joke!). Oh and I sort of suck at spelling, but that's what spell checks for!
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm the most knowledgeable about Merlin, Naruto, One Piece,Harry Potter, and Maximum Ride. At the moment I prefer to Beta for Merlin or Naruto though. I love most genres, but my favorites have to be romance, adventure, humor, friendship, fantasy, and some angst. Depending on how it's written, I'm A-Ok with angst, tragedy, and hurt/comfort. I'm okay with slash and profanity as long as its in character. A little smut is okay.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No poetry, no self-insert stories, no OC centric story, no rape, no drug addict stories, no disorder stories (i.e unhealthy eating disorders or starvation), no self-harm, and no non-English stories. If I don't agree with a romantic pairing (Mergana, Merithian, Naruto/harem, Naruto/Sakura, Harry/Pansy; I usually prefer canon pairings) in a story, I wont read or edit it (One of my biggest picky issue). I'm crap at mysteries, crime, and horror.
